We are excited to participate in the SolSmart program. It has assisted our organization to improve our processes to assist those interested in solar energy. This program shows our neighbors that we are ready to help."Nolan Sunderman, City Manager
Created an online permitting checklist, increasing transparency for community members and solar installers.
Reviewed local zoning codes and identified restrictions that intentionally or unintentionally prohibit solar PV development
Allowed solar by-right accessory use in all zones (so solar installations don’t require special permits or hearings)
Cross-trained both inspection and permitting staff on solar PV
